‘Leaders are not born but are made by experience in life.’ At Lancers, the Student Council and the leadership programme helps develop strong leadership skills by giving students a dedicated space to share their opinions in the running of the school.
Members of the prestigious Student Council are drawn through fiercely contested elections, who then go on to receiving leadership training and are given the opportunity to work with support staff and students.
The main goal of the Student Council is to make the Lancers experience for other students better. Suggestions from students are taken into account and presented to the school staff regularly. For instance, the Food Committee Head is responsible for checking the cafeteria menu and sharing suggestions taken from other students.
The Student Council members are given the responsibility of looking after student welfare and planning of interesting activities such as Sports Day, Teachers’ Day assembly, Diwali Celebrations, Christmas Celebrations, Yearbook and many more.
The Investiture ceremony is a prestigious event in every school’s calendar. To inculcate the leadership qualities in the students and to give them a feel of the administrative body, a school prefectural is formed. The school formally entrusts responsibilities on the ‘young leaders’, who donning the mantle of accountability also pledge to bestow their duties honestly, sincerely and to the best of their abilities, during this ceremony.
The Investiture Ceremony for the academic year 2019-20 is being held on the 23rd of August 2019. Students are required to fill the nomination forms provided.
Greetings! My name is Jyot Singh Narang and I am a student at Lancers International School. I have been given the responsibility and position of school captain for the term 2023-2024. Being selected as the school captain is a huge responsibility, which I aim to try my best to live up to in the eyes of the faculty and management who have given me this opportunity, as well as my peers.As the school captain, it is imperative that I work towards balancing the expectations between the faculty and student body. This starts by clearly defining these expectations for both sides. The title of school captain demands being open minded towards all the ideas, suggestions and topics of discussions brought forward by the student body, and bringing as many of those ideas to life as possible. I also need to organise and collaborate with my fellow council members in order to make the council as efficient and effective as possible. Apart from being a role model, both academically and otherwise, I aim at working towards promoting an environment where everyone; as different as they may be from each other; gets an equal chance to flourish and achieve their full potential.
With the above in mind, I eagerly look forward to the months to come with great optimism. I am aware that these are big shoes to fill, yet I am determined to do this prestigious role justice.
I would like to end by expressing my gratitude to those who saw me worthy of this role, and I promise them my 100%.
SCHOOL VICE CAPTAIN
"Dear All, I am Suhana Dhawan from DP year 1, and I am honoured to address you as the schools vice captain. I've been at lancers for almost a decade. I've grown up in lancers and I've grown up with lancers. This institution has been the crucible in which I've forged myself into a better version of who I am, thanks to my unquenchable thirst for knowledge motivated by my teachers, a fervour to win alongside my peers and above all, a commitment to lead with unwavering dedication, steering others towards their own paths to success.
In this transformative process, Ive learnt that those unfettered by failure are the ones who truly win because at the end of the day, your greed to try and try again will always help you move ahead and reach your goals. We shall encounter trials that test our resolve. Yet, with each step forward, we inch closer to the pinnacle of our ambitions for endurance and the will to succeed are the bedrock of accomplishment. To the student body I would like to say: Though the journey may be arduous, and the road fraught with trepidation, we must remember that our zeal to persist, to dust ourselves of time and time again, will ultimately lead us to victory, for it is the determined spirit that emerges triumphant. Gratitude fills me for this role, and I am resolute in my commitment to serve our school with utmost dedication. Together, let's chart a course to success"
Hello everyone, my name is Roohaan Sharma and I’m currently in Grade 12. Receiving the position of Head Boy at Lancers International School has truly been a privilege. Taking this mantle also gives me the responsibilities of a leader, someone who is able to uplift his peers, while also leading them and ensuring that they are working to the best of their ability. I am fully aware of the influence and responsibility that I have been given and I assure you that I will, to the best of my ability, use my authority to give a voice to the student body and also bring about beneficial change. Finally, to address all of my fellow council members, I look forward to a year of valuable work and positive response from the student body, I will ensure to work alongside every single one of you to make this academic year lively and bounteous.
Before I elapse this address, I’d like to highlight some of the values and qualities that someone with the mantle of Head Boy must possess and how I plan to honor and fulfill these values. The positions in the Student Council signify academic capability and the ability to critically think in order to make decisions and build relationships which is why the quality of leadership is vital for any position of the Student Council. Holding a position with such stature demands the ability to be a leader and I plan to honor this endeavor by building relationships with my peers which allow me to engage in not only friendly conversation but also competition and I feel that this trait is one that every leader should possess.
Finally, I’d like to thank our respected Head of School Mr. Yogesh Sindhwani. Someone who’s paved the path to not only my success but also the success of my fellow peers. The immense support and trust that he has placed in me by providing me with the mantle of Head Boy is something that I will forever be thankful for.
Greetings, I am Riya Manchanda from Grade 12. I am proud to be elected as the Head Girl of Lancers for the academic year 2022-2023. Ever since I joined the extremely supportive Lancerian Community as a nervous 9th grade student, I have grown as an individual. Watching my teachers and peers sticking together through difficult times even during a global pandemic, has given me a newfound sense of confidence and compassion.
Being elected as Head Girl is a great honour and a huge responsibility. It is a position that comes with many challenges, but is concurrently truly rewarding.
First and foremost, being a member of the Student Council means being a role model for the students at the school. This entails always striving to set a good example, both in terms of academic performance and personal behaviour. It means being a leader who aspires to be their best selves and inspires others to do their best, and that is precisely what I always aim to achieve. It is rightly said, "Being a leader is not about being in charge, it's about taking care of those in your charge."
Being Head Girl has also meant being a representative of the school, while facilitating collaboration. Whether it is organising school events like inter-school competitions, fundraising events, etc, or initiating activities like the school play, the Student Council is responsible for making the school a positive learning environment. An important job is also to act as a liaison between the students and the administration, helping to ensure that the student voice is heard and that the needs of the students are met.
Despite these challenging and sensitive tasks, being Head Girl is an extremely rewarding experience. It is an opportunity to make a real difference in the lives of the students at the school and to leave a lasting legacy. It is an opportunity to welcome new students into a friendly environment, just like I was welcomed in grade 9. It is also a chance to develop important leadership skills that will be valuable in any future endeavours I undertake.
I am truly grateful to the school administration for placing their faith in me and granting me this opportunity. I will strive to live up to their expectations.
